reliant on the judicial branch to do things. i will read an excerpt from the "washington post" which says giving liberals a greatser say on the d.c. circuit court is posh for obama as he looks for ways to sir kim event the polarized house. do you agree with that?circumved house. do you agree with that? >> to actually do their jobs. that's actually evidenced by the nominees that the president has put forward. so if you actually look at just the three most recent circuit court judges that the president has successfully gotten through the confirmation process in the senate, all three of those, all three of those now judges had to wait more than 250 days for their vote. but once they actually got a vote, they got more than 87 votes each. so this is not a matter of putting ideological people on the bench. this is a matter of putting qualified people who have bipartisan support on the bench in place, to do their jobs and to fulfill their responsibilities that federal judges all across the country have, which is to make sure that justice is served in a timely fashion. >> josh does bring up a goo

. shame on us if we have forgotten. >>> for years now, we've been hearing opponents of president obama and some supporters of his say that he just isn't willing to fight for what he believes in. that he compromises too easily, that he gives up too easily. today, with most of washington politicians and the political media firmly convinced that nothing significant can be done on gun and ammunition control, the president stubbornly stood and fought for it, but he did not stand alone. he stood with the parents of children from connecticut to california whose lives were snuffed out by gun violence. >> that anguish is still fresh in newtown. less than 100 days ago that happened. and the entire country was shocked. the entire country pledged we would do something about it and this time would be different. i haven't forgotten those kids. shame on us if we have forgotten. >> the president pushed for approval of all of his legislative proposals, including an assault weapons ban, a limit on high-capacity magazines and he especially emphasized his most popular proposal. >> 90% support background c

sometime in the next few months. it's become a political controversy. just this week president obama was greeted outside a california fundraiser by protesters pushing the president to reject the pipeline extension. texas oil tycoon t. boone pickens knows what it is like to pick an energy fight in washington though he doesn't have much of a winning record. i spoke to him earlier this week about his frustrations in pitching what he calls the pick ens plan. welcome. thanks for being here. >> sure. glad to be here. >> before we talk about energy you said recently washington has the largest group of incompetent people in one place in the world. do you mind elaborating? >> one thing would be we haven't had a budget in five years. i can't imagine operating government without a budget. okay. that's one reason. and another is, you know, i've brought the pickens plan up here. simple plan. get on your own resources. get off opec oil. that's not hard to understand. >> certainly there would be i would think a lot of people in congress who want to support that. >> you'd think so but we never got a
in a show of military might. dan lothian is live from washington. we're hearing this headline, dan, but at the same time we're also learning from the obama administration they have this so-called playbook for north korea. >> that's right. that was first reported by the "wall street journal" now independently confirmed by cnn that there was this playbook whereby the north korea did one thing, then the u.s. would react in a certain way. now there's this concern though, according to one official that perhaps they may have pushed north korea's leader too far. so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind over the last several weeks the u.s. really has been beefing up its presence in the region. twice last month the u.s. said b-52 bombers that fly over south korea as part of what we are told is a routine mission. there were navy ships sent to the region and then just yesterday, of course, we find out that this missile defense system will be sent to guam. a lot of concern because many u.s. officials really don't know kim jong-un. they believe that he is unpredictable. perhaps c
this is a washington, and that's why i blame this number on them. >> do you think this is a sequester effect? the payroll tax and the increase for the rich. >> this as president obama gets set to announce his budget proposal this week. let's bring in john harwood. >> reporter: good morning, david. this jobs number will play directly into the political arguments as jim cramer suggested, and as jan hatzius suggested a moment ago when he talked about how sequester may have had a modest effect on this jobs number, but it will have more over time. that matches what president obama has said over and over including at this press briefing earlier this year. >> the longer these cuts remain in place the greater the damage to our economy. slow grind that will intensify with each passing day. and then right on cue, alan krueger, he ratcheted up that criticism of washington echoing jim cramer. >> the economy's continuing to heal. what we need to do in washington is avoid self-inflicted wounds. most importantly, they y isequ, the congressional budget office estimates it will reduce job growth by 750,000
. this breaking news this morning, the "washington post" has gotten a heads up on the president's proposal for the budget of next year. what's interesting is this is unlike the barak obama we've heard from in the past. he's actually talking about cutting social security and medicare big time. but you know what? he's also talking about more taxes. fewer tax hikes, but he is still in this new budget proposal calling for $580 billion in more tax if they did change the cost of living calculation for s the so-called cbit could generate $200 billion. unfortunately, it's going to generate a lot of heat from democrats. >> brian: chain cbi will send guys like independent sanders, bernie sanders over the top. it will send nancy pelosi into the moon. but that's something that republicans say you talked about doing it. when it comes to action, you don't do it. that would be significant. also, he's also talk being a 28% cap on all entitlements which would affect charities, home builders, pension plans, anybody who tried to buy a home. >> steve: writeoffs. >> brian: yeah. so-called closing of loopholes.
